As a child, she learned retail sales and bookkeeping from her father and used that knowledge in all her successful business endeavors.

Rose and Jay only recently turned their Bedding Center business in Attleboro, Mass., over to their son, who continues to run the store that Rose and Jay opened in 1969.
Rose helped draft a new Charter for Bristol, as the only woman on the town’s first Charter Commission.
Rose and Jay shared many adventures during their marriage. They were able to travel the world extensively with family and friends. Rose was a much beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend. Her wisdom, her advice, her generosity and her love will be missed.
